Now that it's official that the Daily Show's Larry Wilmore is going to take over Stephen Colbert's coveted time slot on Comedy Central with The Minority Report, it's time to start getting familiar with the longtime Senior Black Correspondent. 

Here's what we know:

He had a really funny Showtime special during the last election. 

 

He was a writer and producer on The PJs, The Bernie Mac Show and The Office (in which he appeared as Mr. Brown in the episode Diversity Day, above)


He wrote a book titled I'd Rather We Got Casinos in which he makes a good argument for Jesus' "homie heritage."

 

 

He's an OG in the game. 

 

He consistently kills it on the Daily Show.
